A Lutz, Florida, man was arrested Sunday after posting a school shooting threat to social media.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Florida announced that Corey Anderson, 18, wrote, “Hey Siri, directions to the nearest school,” in his social media post, accompanied by photos of himself, a tactical-style vest, and weapons that appeared to be a handgun and rifle.
"This type of threat is unacceptable. This man intentionally instilled fear into our community as a sick joke, but be warned, this is no laughing matter," Sheriff Chad Chronister said.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said it received a tip Sunday about Anderson’s social media post.

"We will do everything within our power to apprehend, and pursue charges on those who make school-based threats. Protecting students is our greatest priority,” Chronister added. “We take school threats very seriously, if you see something suspicious, please contact us immediately."
Detectives investigating the post determined that the handgun and rifle were “airsoft guns.”
